The following "Beijing-Novosibirsk seminar on geometry and mathematical physics" will take place on April 15

The Mathematical center in Akademgorodok invites you to take part in the "Beijing-Novosibirsk seminar on geometry and mathematical physics" on April 15 at 11 am Novosibirsk time (UTC+7). Pay attention: the time is different from the usual one. 
The seminar's heads: A. E. Mironov, I. A. Taimanov, Huijun Fan, Youjin Zhang.

During the seminar Professor Umut Varolgunes (Stanford University) will present his talk "Homological mirror symmetry for chain type polynomials".

I will start by explaining Takahashi's homological mirror symmetry (HMS) conjecture regarding invertible polynomials, which is an open string interpretation of Berglund-Hubsch-Henningson mirror symmetry. In joint work with A. Polishchuk, we resolve this HMS conjecture in the chain type case up to rigorous proofs of general statements about Fukaya-Seidel categories. Our proof goes by showing that the categories in both sides are obtained from the category Vect(k) by applying a recursion. I will explain this recursion categorically and sketch the argument for why it is satisfied on the A-side assuming the aforementioned foundational results. If time permits, I will also mention what goes into the proof in the B-side.

To take part, please, on April 15 after 10:45 am Novosibirsk time (UTC+7) connect to the Zoom conference via this link:
